Love Island star’s drink spiked with date rape drug

Katie Salmon was left unconscious and covered in blood

Love Island contestant Katie Salmon was left unconscious on the street after she was spiked with a date rape drug.

The 20-year-old was covered in blood after being robbed and attacked by a stranger she met in a nightclub.

The horrendous ordeal has left her too afraid to leave the house alone.

Talking to The Sun Online, the glamour model said: “I’d been out for a curry with some friends and afterwards we went to a nightclub in West London,” explains Katie.

“I met this guy in there who said he was a big fan of the show and was asking me for selfies, so I was letting him and was chatting away as that’s what I’m like.

“He was sat on the table next to us and poured me a drink, I don’t remember much after that but my friends told me that he spent the rest of the night following me around, trying to give me drinks and even waiting outside the toilet for me.

“The last thing I remember was being in the toilet and feeling really weird, my head was spinning, and that’s literally all I can remember.”

Katie’s best friend and fellow Love Island pal Jessica Hayes, said that she left the club at 2.30am with the man, whom she believes is called Daniel.

It got worse after leaving the club.

Going into more detail, Katie said: “I woke up outside a hotel at around 5.30am with cuts and blood all down me, I was covered in bruises and grazes and I was so terrified.

“My phone had been robbed, my bag had been robbed, I had nothing.

“I was crying hysterically and really shook up, I was so confused and had no idea what happened, all I knew was that I needed the police.

“When the police arrived I felt so strange, I couldn’t get my words out – I was having the thoughts, but I couldn’t speak properly.”

Poor Liverpool-born Katie was so confused and traumatised, it wasn’t until 7.30am that she arrived back at Jess’s apartment after the police worked out where she was staying using Instagram.

“When I finally got to Jess’s she told me she’d seen me leave with this guy at 2.30am and I immediately assumed the worse and was hysterical.

“I just sat on the couch in a daze while my friends tried to clean my legs.

“We called the police again to report what had happened and by the time they came later that morning, I was still in a daze.”

Police told Katie that she showed side effects of being spiked with the drug GHB.

Katie also said that she doesn’t feel like she was raped.

Later on, the police discovered that the stranger tried to check them both into a hotel but it was fully booked.

It then appeared that the fan just left Katie on the street to pass out, and stole her belongings.
